The Blue Microphones Stage One is our most accessible Class A discrete solid state mic with a foundation for interchangeable capsules. Precision-designed and hand-assembled, the Blue Microphones Stage One is crafted for a lifetime of use. Compared to similar microphones, the Blue Microphones Stage One has a very low self noise specification (< 7.5 dB) and a very high output level (+12dBV), making it the perfect choice for today’s high sample rate/deep word length digital platforms. Instead of integrated circuits (chips), the Blue Microphones Stage One employs a transformless Class A discrete amplifier circuit to ensure the most accurate and noise-free signal possible, with minimal distortion and coloration. The Blue Microphones Stage One is an ideal microphone for recording virtually any sound source. In addition to the microphone, the Blue Microphones Stage One also includes custom spider shockmount.
